Ok, so we're having a Christmas party and I came across this recipe. I'm so glad I did! This is a very good cake/bread for a gathering or to finish off a good dinner. It's not to sweet - a little dry, but fanstatic as it does not weigh you down. There is a perfect blend of eggnog and rum. However, I must tell you that I used the eggnog with the alcohol already mixed in just to give it a little extra kick. I could not find currants though, so I substituted raisins. I also did not use almonds and instead used pecan halves. I do believe I will make a rum glaze for the top for an added flavor and I was perhaps thinking of mixing nutmeg in with the recipe. Overall, I will be making this again as the only I made was just for a taste test. Our party is in 2 days and I will make a fresh one and let you know what the guests' say!
